BOOST is designed to facilitate the secure and timely delivery of data to customer locations from VSAT-based endpoints. Integrated into the company’s ground infrastructure, Lepton’s BOOST virtual network utilizes five “engines” to provide WAN optimization: Security, Efficiency, Quality of Service (QoS), Congestion Control and Virtualized Routing. BOOST provides WAN network management specifically designed to address the high-latency, low-bandwidth environment of satellite networking with features including Caching, Compression, Acceleration, VPN IPSEC and Global Single IP Addressing.

“The breadth of functionality of the BOOST solution is what makes this such a compelling addition for our customers,” stated Rob Weitendorf, managing partner at Lepton Global Solutions. “In addition to caching and compressing data, and accelerating file transfers at endpoints, it virtualizes MPLS networks and provides a built-in VPN capability on top. Customers can securely and efficiently route between their headquarters and remote locations for a fraction of the traditional cost.”
